So what words of wisdom helped me make run my small business this week? Here’s a few I liked.
@KnowledgeBishop Today's effort determines tomorrow's outcome.
@Hyken Good service can set a company ahead of competitors who have better products and less service. @Leadershipfreak The surprising truth is humble leaders gain influence because they know, understand and appreciate others. @smoothsale Feature each of your collaborative partners on your website, blog etc & all should reciprocate. Marketing attracts! @DarrenHudach I don't believe in luck. I believe in hard work and preparation. @PhilJones40 Never outsource your eyes. Seeing things for yourself gives fresh perspective and insight. @LeadToday It's either the truth or it's a lie. If there is another choice in your mind people will always question your integrity.
@ToSellTraining I think we can learn a lot by watching how our kids keep in touch with each other - they network very effectively!
@NightingaleEarl All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination. @JonahLupton Be different. Copycats never leave a legacy.
@NicoleAFende You WILL be burning down your business if you don't contain and eventually extinguish your burn rate.
@CarrieWilkerson Made your 'critical' action list for tomorrow yet? End the day with a plan for tomorrow. It gives you a head start!
@johnmorgan Your goal is to position your brand in the mind of the consumer as a valued resource rather than another service provider.
